Gallery Beyond Walls (GBW) is a multi-faceted, visual arts program focused on engaging the community in the arts, facilitating dialogue, revitalizing marginalized communities, and highlighting freedom of expression. Creative projects can be created by the community themselves, as a collaboration between the community and professional artists, or solely by professional artists with input from the community. The projects can result in small-scale art projects (such as paintings), exhibitions, large-scale permanent interventions (such as murals or public art “sculptures”), or temporary installations.

Projects include:

Project Foto

Offering young women a creative voice while fostering positive self-esteem and developing media skills.

Illuminated Recipes

Illuminated Recipes is a project that uses the power of food and art to document the refugee experience, foster conversation, and connect people across generations and cultures.
